My In-Laws took us to a brunch buffet today for 'easter'. They aren't very religious either, but they're not what you'd call deep-thinkers. I think they just think everyone celebrates easter, christmas,etc., that's just how it is. Anyway it's an awesome brunch, and hey, it was free! So I walked in there thinking if any of them said happy easter, I'd just say something like happy spring or something. Well she accidentally said happy christmas! lol. So I just said happy halloween! and we both laughed. So everytime someone said it to me I said things like happy memorial day, thanksgiving, etc. Then we came home and took naps. Nice day!
Oops, I put this in introductions somehow. Oh well!
Lol. Maybe she was also an atheist on the spot.
I also went to brunch, it was delish but had to pay. :(
And I admit I said "Happy Easter" in response to the hostess, oops. :)
I always enjoy your replies Loren!
haaghhhh fkn' holidaze.. oooopssss I mean holy'da$e...? ; )
I went to go pick up the kids last night, about an hour and a half's drive to their grandparent's (my wife's late-husband's parents) place outside of Charlotte, NC. Grandpa's actually somewhat of a celebrity in the motor racing biz, he used to be a driver. That's like royalty in North Carolina.
Anyway, I was wearing my Reason Rally hat, with a few pins on it, including the atheist "A". I have no idea if they knew the significance of the hat or the pins, but when Grandma wished me a Happy Easter and gave me a hug, I replied, "and, Happy Spring!". No problems.
I hung out and chatted for a while, heard some great stories from Grandpa and we went home.
Well that all worked out nice for you then! :) I think a lot of people don't know what the A means. I have an = sticker on my car (for equal rights for everybody-gay, straight, whatever), and I don't think a lot of people know what that stands for either.
My husband is a racing-fan. He likes drag-racing the best, but he does watch NASCAR too sometimes.
